president obama canceled his visit to moscow to meet with president putin (in international affairs people say putin is anti-american. i say no, he's non-american. he has a foreign policy from europe to the middle east that's different from america. he takes pride in that and on the basis of that he's made allies. to give snowden, a highly symbolic figure given the surveillance issue would have collided with what putin's done in international affairs. but at home he has a political elite. forget society. the political elite didn't want him to make this concession to the united states. >> rose: we conclude with julian guthrie, a journalist who has written a book about larry ellison called "the billionaire and the mechanic." it details the story of his quest for the america's cup. >> and it was expected that larry would partner with a better-known yacht club on san francisco's waterfront, the st. francis yacht club. and there's a fun story in the book about what happened or what didn't happen between the st. francis and larry ellison. but it's a story that doesn't come along very often and i
're crazy. you must be living in another world." >> rose: let me move to that, 2008, november, barack obama, the first black american elect elected. what did it mean, tell me? because people, i think, in some cases don't genuinely appreciate what it meant to see-- i just saw the butler, "the butler" which is about the butler, and oprah winfrey is in it and forrest whittaker is brilliant. and there's a sort of amazing scene in which she has died, the wife has died, and resigned from the white house, retired, watches president obama accept the adulation of the crowd, having won that election. what did it mean to so many black americans to see him elected? >> well, the night that obama was declared the president -- >> he was? chicago. >> he was in chicago. i was in atlanta at dr. king's old church. >> rose: watching television in. >> watching on television. i cried. i cried. i was speaking at the pulpit, and i looked back and i saw that he had carried pennsylvania. he had carried ohio. i knew it was over. i jumped so high, i didn't think my spheet were ever going to touch the ground and i crie
that has come up in the last two days is the obama administration has claimed that al qaeda is in deep trouble. i think that claim is true. and they're kind of-- but they're also saying if the organization is if deep trouble why did we just close 22 embassies and consulates in 17 different countries. and i think both statements are true. i mean an organization that is in deep trouble can still talk to each other and make threatening statements that we pick upment does it mean that they're operationalizing something, does it mean they have the capability, that's a whole different question. and as a factual matter the last time they attacked successly in the west was july 7th -- 005 in london. >> rose: we conclude with dr. atul gawande who wrote an interesting piece in the "new yorker" magazine about innovation. >> the most intriguing question in my mind is health care has been about the individual doctor and their brilliance for the last half century, where we've had knowledge and capabilities. but now the knowledge and the capability has outstripped what our own, any one of our brains

(laughter) >> that was a great moment. >> we were talking about had we achieved it yet and it's still sitting on that promissory note that martin luther king talked about, the promissory note of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness that this is the note that was promised to all american for human rights so the civil rights movement which isn't really a history, it's a living history. because we're still moving in the same shape towards accomplishing what was the initial promise. he talks about that vault, he refuses to believe that it's empty and that all of us can have the things that we deserved.

agree with most of the decisions made by the secretaries of treasury and both the bush and the obama administration, and as well as a continued judgement of the federal reserve. >> yeah. i am sorry to disappoint by saying those things but i think that's what happened. and i think that the very rapid reaction of the u.s. treasury both at the end of the bush administration and continuing, and the decision to fix the banks immediately, were critical. and the ability to stay with those programs, when you look at the politics, it looks very hard to imagine that there's been consistent approach but there has been. >> rose: but as you know also it created criticism here because people said look, they care more about the banks then they care about main street. >> yeah, well, i'm still surprised that so few bankers have been-- have been holed up for what they did. and it's beginning to happen. but it's a surprise. >> rose: you mean in terms of legal action against the banks. >> by the government. >> rose: you're surprised there haven't been more. >> my guess is that at the time of the crisis,
